  • YES! Now this will be a great battle =)

  • calling it now. Penance Trophy.

    • And Thunder Plains’ thunder dodging, too.


        • For Rikku. :x

        • Julio D. Zulkarnain

          With great power, comes great responsibility…or so they said

      • Daniel Williams

        I think its more likely that they will have trophies for completing celestial weapons. That will cover most of the side quests.

        • Most likely the case, but still… it could happen.

        • Hound

          I declare that I’m never playing chocobo races or dodging lightning ever again. It could result in 10 platinums for all I care.

    • Better this than Yiazmat if FF XII HD becomes a thing.

      At least with this you can glitch Yojimbo.

      • Hound

        Yiazmat was just boring (which is why they provided the opportunity to save during the fight.)

        • Syn

          dont know which game you played, but Yazmat was amazing, The ability to one shot anyone no matter the level is a great challenge thats cemented his position as the ultimate super boss of ff xii

    • Hound

      I’d like creative trophies that harken to the weird way people played RPGs back then. Such as “Beat the entire game using only Rikku when available,” “No sphere grid,” “Only use Titus,” “beat the game with a game time below 15 hrs,” or “no saving (vita only)” etc

      • Morricane

        “discover weird glitches and speedrun the game in 5 mins without having fun!”-style?

      • AlaskanKactus

        Just putting this out there. Playing the game with “Rikku Only” was a great experience. Definitely brings a lot more risk to the game.

  • Never bothered to face him the first time, MIGHT give it a try this time round.

  • Prinny Dood

    can’t wait ; )

  • Suriel Cruz

    Is that the date of release, December 26?… or just the Japan release?…

    • Japan.

      Note: At the top of every article, the nations/countries the article involves is displayed at the top.

      • Suriel Cruz

        Thanks! I skip that part… I was hype! lol

  • Loli Summoner

    Pssh,i’ll school this guy.

  • Franggio Hogland

    Meh, beat him once, beat him twice a third time will not make it different.

    • Syn

      Trophy maybe?? Thats enough reason for me lol

  • Ginko29

    This guy was so tough, I had to resort to Zanmato to kill him… even though I had maxed everyone and they had their ultimate weapons. I still feel the shame. >_>
    I’ll try to beat him fair and square this time!

    And it’s weird that he’s called Penance in English. I knew him as Der Richter and apparently, that’s the original name.

  • AoNoise

    I seriously wonder if X-2 is going to have the contents from the International Version :|

  • Jeffrey Kuhl

    I love how people keep posting old news.

  • yellowmage

    Penance vs. Trema and/or Major Numerus. Hmmm…

  • ShootThatWay

    Cool, I didn’t get the international version so this will be a new challenge for me.
    *Prepares body*

  • Aww yeah, my Vita keeps chugging along ^ ^
